LeBron James scores 51 points, Lakers roll past Heat 113-97 - Nov 19, 2018

LeBron James
There was a time when LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) getting pestered by Lance Stephenson (6'5''-G/F-90, college: Cincinnati) would have worked out wonderfully for the Miami Heat. Sunday was not one of those times. The scenario: It was late in the game, the outcome was decided, and Stephenson - James' former rival, now his teammate with the Los Angeles Lakers - challenged him to finish the game off with a 3-pointer. 'I bet you won't go for the 3,' Stephenson said. The Heat probably wish that conversation never took place. James' capped his 51-point night with a 32-foot 3-pointer in the final seconds, pointed at Stephenson to let him know he was wrong, and the Lakers rolled past the Heat 113-97 for their seventh win in their last nine games. James reached 50 for the 13th time in his career, including Game 1 of last season's NBA Finals. 'It's just playing with greatness,' Lakers guard Lonzo Ball (6'6''-G-97, college: UCLA, agency: Slash Sports) said. 'Tonight he took the game over.' James shot 19 for 31 from the field, 6 for 8 from 3-point range, became the seventh player to score at least 51 in a game against Miami, and started his two-game reunion tour in sensational fashion. The Lakers' next game is Wednesday night in Cleveland, the only other place besides Miami and L.A. that James has called home as a professional. 'It's always great to be here,' said James, who hugged a slew of familiar faces in the arena he used to call home. 'We had some not-so-good times, we had more great times, so it's always a respect factor and a love for the people in Miami and especially the people who work here.' And finally, he left Miami a winner again. Since leaving the Heat after the 2014 NBA Finals James was 0-4 against Miami; his teams were 0-7, when including the three Cleveland-Miami games that he sat out for various reasons. James put on a show. The Heat threw a shoe. It was their fourth straight home loss and frustrations boiled over. Josh Richardson got ejected in the fourth quarter after throwing one of his sneakers into the stands, upset about a call that he felt he didn't get moments earlier. 'I just can't let that happen,' Richardson said. Wayne Ellington (6'4''-G-87, college: N.Carolina) scored 19 points for Miami (6-10), which is off to its second-worst start in the last 12 years. The Heat were 5-11 at this point of the 2016-17 season, the only other time they've been worse after 16 games in that span. Richardson and Tyler Johnson (6'4''-G-92, college: Fresno St.) each scored 17 points for the Heat, while Rodney McGruder added 14. 'We're going to get to work,' Heat coach Erik Spoelstra vowed. They need some health, too. Goran Dragic missed the game for Miami because of a right knee problem, one that will be further evaluated Monday. Dwyane Wade (6'4''-G-82, college: Marquette) remained on leave after the birth of his daughter, and may return to the Heat this week. Miami hasn't forgotten James, obviously - he still gets loud cheers when introduced in his former home arena - but just in case anyone in attendance needed a reminder of his game, he delivered. He made eight of his first nine shots and had the whole arsenal working; dunks in transition, stepback 3-pointers, turnarounds from the baseline. 'When he's hitting shots like that, what do you want us to do?' Heat center Hassan Whiteside (7'0''-C-89, college: Marshall) mused. Even with James' greatness, the biggest shot for the Lakers might have come from Brandon Ingram with 3:46 left. Miami had clawed within eight and the shot clock was about to expire on the Lakers, but Ingram connected on a long jumper from the left wing to make it 104-94. From there, the only drama was whether James would get 50. And he did. 'Just give him the ball,' Lakers guard Kyle Kuzma said, 'and get out of the way.'

Nets' Joe Harris shocks Warriors' Stephen Curry for 3-point title - 11 hours ago
Stephen Curry (6'3''-PG-88, college: Davidson)'s storybook 3-point contest dream ended Saturday night at the hands of Brooklyn Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris (6'6''-G-91, college: Virginia). Harris, who came into the weekend shooting a career-high 50.1 percent from 3-point land, stunned a capacity crowd in Curry's hometown of Charlotte, by knocking down 26 points in the final round, beating Curry's score of 24.

Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (6'8''-F-98, college: Duke) guaranteed a victory in Saturday night's NBA Skills Challenge competition during NBA All-Star Weekend media day on Saturday morning. As confident as he was, he sure made it as dramatic as possible. He came from behind to dispatch Kyle Kuzma (6'9''-F-95, college: Utah) and Nikola Jokic (6'10''-C-95, agency: BeoBasket) to make the final round. But to beat Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young, he needed a little something extra. Youn...   [read more]
